Hello! I'm Scott Hilton, Senior Lecturer at the University of Texas, Arlington. I've been an SPE member since 2003, and served as Chapter Treasurer from 2015-2017.
It is my honor to serve as the Chair of the South Central Chapter. We have a very active membership here in the SC, and my goal as chair is to expand our programming to include more innovative, interactive, and localized activities. Big things are on the horizon!
Thanks to all the dedicated artists and educators who make being in the South Central Chapter such a special priviledge.
I encourage you all to register and attend our 2018 Chapter Conference, "Material & Meaning," Oct 4-6, 2018, at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA, where we will laissez les bon temps rouler. And be all scholarly and artsy while doing it.
Special thanks to the 2018 SPE South Central Chapter Conference planning committee:
Louisiana State University - Baton Rouge, Louisiana | October 04 - October 06, 2018
October 4th – October 6th, 2018
HOSTED BY: Louisiana State University
Conference Committee: Johanna Warwick (LSU), Kristine Thompson (LSU), Jeremiah Ariaz (LSU), Lily Brooks (Southeastern Louisiana University), Jonathan Traviesa (Tulane University), and Deb Lillie (Nicholls State University)
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:
Material + Meaning brings together shared thematic concerns at the forefront of contemporary photographic practices. The widespread exploration of the aesthetic and physical possibilities of photography points toward a renewed understanding of the photograph as material object. We are interested in putting these investigations of the tactile and tangible in conversation withthe harder-to-pin- down social and political concerns of our time. What can photography help us understand about power, truth, transparency, and reliability? We look to artists who synthesize materiality and meaning to act as stewards of interpretation and representation---framing and shaping visual culture and politics. We hope this conference will provide a platform for us to connect and reflect on these themes within our region and beyond.
Early registration ends Sept 10, and closes October 1. On-site registration will be available. Refunds must be requested by Sept 20, more detials in the Registration tab.
